This study explores the relationship between death anxiety and sociopolitical attitudes and political behavior. Data from a sample of 209 undergraduate students indicate that death anxiety (as measured by Templer's DAS and the Collett-Lester Fear of Death Scale) is modestly related to attitudes reflecting a turning away from the social and political world. Death anxiety does not seem related to political behavior.
